The Allstate Foundation

The Allstate Foundation has joined with the National Safety Council (NSC) to make roadways safer by forming coalitions in 10 states to address teen driving. The 10 coalitions have a common goal: To establish a culture of teen safe driving based on proven principles of Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL). Learn more about the Teen Safe Driving Coalitions here.

The Allstate Foundation is seeking to identify effective new approaches to improving teen driver safety, launching its comprehensive teen safe driving program in 2005. The Allstate Foundation Teen Driving Program empowers teens to become part of the solution, taking a positive approach to addressing the No. 1 killer of teens and making smart driving socially acceptable.

Toyota Driving Expectations

In 2004, the National Safety Council, the U.S. Department of Transportation and Toyota partnered to offer Toyota Driving Expectations, a free, four-hour program that provides teens with important skill development opportunities, while providing parents with the knowledge and tools to keep their teens safe. The program includes elements of NSC’s signature driving programs including the Defensive Driving Course, Alive at 25® and Family Guide To Teen Driver Safety.

Toyota Driving Expectations goes beyond what is currently taught in typical driver training classes to help teens identify the critical relationship between distractions and reaction time. Teens and parents navigate a driving course while drinking water, listening to loud music and talking on a cell phone. They also experience hard braking maneuvers on wet and dry pavement and maneuver through multiple slalom driving courses under the watchful eyes of professional drivers.

Parents and teens are split into separate groups for part of the course, allowing parents to learn about vehicle safety technology, defensive driving and how to design and set realistic expectations for their teen. The program concludes with teens and parents reuniting to develop a safe driving contract to be put into practice when the families return home.

Toyota Driving Expectations are being held all over the country. Check toyotadrivingexpectations.com for availability in your area.  

 

 

Teen Driving Safety Leadership Award - General Motors

Did you know that every day, more than 10 young drivers ages 15-20 are killed in motor vehicle crashes, and another 745 are injured? Traffic crashes are the leading cause of teen fatalities, accounting for 38% of all teen deaths in the United States. These numbers are staggering, but there’s hope.

Individuals and organizations across the nation are getting involved, making change happen. The National Safety Council, with General Motors sponsorship, wants to recognize their efforts through the Teen Driving Safety Leadership Award.

Created to honor individuals and organizations that have made exceptional contributions to reducing the number of crashes, injuries and deaths involving teen drivers. This award is based not only on contributions made, but also the lives saved as a result of the activities.The award focuses on five areas and winners will have taken actions that include:

  • Advocacy
  • Leadership or coordination of an effort to adopt best practices
  • Enacting legislation based on proven safety methods
  • Enhancing public understanding of teen driving safety issues and prevention methods
  • Demonstrating a consistent commitment to teen driving safety leadership
 
 
 
 
 

The Hard Truth

Traffic crashes are the #1 cause of death for teens.

One out of five 16-year-olds will be in a car crash. Some will be minor, while others will be very serious.

During the first six months and first 1,000 miles of driving, crash risk is the highest it will be during a lifetime.
